  • Is this related to Windows Vista? Originally written by our moderator, Noel Paton:

    Windows XP hasn't been supported for more than 5 years.

    SP2 (for example) hasn't been supported since about 2009.

  • I had that link in my support notes, but I've subsequently seen that link (as well as a few others, all of which result in a 404 error) in various Windows 7 support forums and Google searches.

    The issue came up in the Windows 7 section of Microsoft Community.  Even though Windows 7 support stopped this past January, there still are quite a few Windows 7 installations active.

    In fact, checking in this forum, I see a post from Noel P. on July 29, 2020, that used the same link I had used.  https://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/976b6383-55e6-4fed-8475-941667d39d43/windows-7-says-this-copy-is-not-genuine?forum=genuinewindows7

    I can only conclude that this is another Windows 7 resource that has been retired.

  • Apparently, that resource has now been retired by Microsoft. It is best to begin using the latest genuine (and secure) Windows operating system, which is Windows 10.
